The cast of Mortal Instruments on bringing City of Bones to life
If you don't yet know the names Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower, Robert Sheehan and Kevin Zegers, you are definitely out of the YA loop but with the August 21 release of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, that will all change.
The first book in a best-selling series written by Cassandra Clare gets a big-screen adaptation, at the hands of director Harald Zwart, and before you can say Twilight, this story has more to do with tapping into secret, supernatural worlds that few can see than forever love and, as Campbell Bower puts it, tells the story of a girl becoming a young woman.
The movie's young stars recently hit Toronto to attend a special screening for the film and did a full day of interviews but were articulate, fresh-faced and thoughtful when they sat down to talk about their roles in the next big thing and how their other-worldly tale has its roots in reality.
